More About Holacracy by Brian J. Robertson
 
 
 
Overview

Holacracy is a revolutionary management system that redefines management and turns everyone into a leader.

Holacracy distributes authority and decision-making throughout an organization, and defines people not by hierarchy and titles, but by roles. Holacracy creates organizations that are fast, agile, and that succeed by pursuing their purpose, not following a dated and artificial plan.

This isn't anarchy it's quite the opposite. When you start to follow Holacracy, you learn to create new structures and ways of making decisions that empower the people who know the most about the work you do: your frontline colleagues.

Some of the many champions of Holacracy include Tony Hsieh, CEO of Zappos.com (author of the #1 "New York Times" bestseller "Delivering Happiness"), Evan Williams (co-founder of Blogger, Twitter, and Medium), and David Allen."

As this illuminating business manual relates, HolacracyOne founder Robertson started his company in order to help other leaders prepare their companies for growth and scale. According to him, businesspeople need to be able to react promptly and improve quickly, and the current model—top-down; “predict-and-control”—is not fast or agile enough. The “Holacracy” technique was created to address this need. It comprises a “constitution” for the redistribution of power within the company, a revamp of company structure and hierarchy, an overhauled decision-making process, and a revised model for meetings and communication. The book accordingly leads readers through the process of redistributing authority and improving decision-making, which involves shifting from personal leadership to constitutionally-derived power. Backed up by contributions from Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh and other business luminaries, this is a practical, step-by-step guide to putting in place a new, unfamiliar structure, one where the executive retains autonomy and individual authority while allowing others to lead highly structured meetings and systematic decision-making. This approach requires an all-in; it’s most likely to find its readership with those who are ready to make a huge leap. B&w illus. Agent: Lisa Queen, Queen Literary Agency. (June)
